Richard Florida’s latest book, The Flight of the Creative Class: The New Global Competition for Talent just came out three days ago, the global-focused follow-up to his 2002 business best-seller, The Rise of the Creative Class: And How It’s Transforming Work, Leisure, Community and Everyday Life.
In his first book, Florida expounded on the “three T’s”: talent, technology and tolerance, as the means to creativity ultimately leading to economic performance. The mayor of Denver and Governor of Michigan became staunch supporters and implementors.
His new book expands the scope of where the creative class is migrating to globally. Beyond the most creative U.S. meccas of San Francisco, Austin, and Seattle – the flight of the creative class is landing in Sydney, Shanghai, Amsterdam, Dublin, Bangalore, and Toronto. Read the book to find out why!
